About me

I'm Kate, I'm a fully qualified, person-centred counsellor based at the Serenity Sanctuary in Gosport. I’m an honest, warm and naturally caring person, who deeply values the positive impact that therapy can have on a person’s life.

I’ll provide a safe haven where you have my complete attention. I will listen without judgement and strive to understand your experience as fully as I can. The more you explore what’s troubling you, the more you can come to terms with the past, accept where you are, who you are, and move forwards with life.

I work in my private practice in Gosport, where I work with adults, across a wide range of personal issues and challenges. My practice is based at the Serenity Sanctuary which is a complementary and holistic therapy centre offering a wide range of therapies. The centre is therefore a warm, relaxing and peaceful space, ideal for counselling.

I'm passionate about the benefits counselling can offer, and I know that time pressures and logistics can often be barriers for people to access this wonderful, life-enhancing resource. I therefore see clients at a wide range of times, including early mornings, day times, evenings, and even weekends. To further remove barriers and increase access, I also offer counselling via the telephone, as well as offering a choice between the standard 50 minute appointments, and the extended 80 minute sessions.

Getting Started:

To get started, the first thing to do is to contact me to arrange an initial session, where we can discuss what you want to get out of counselling, and you can ask any questions you may have.

My goal is to offer choice and flexibility, so contact me in whichever way suits you - by phone, text message or email.

Once we've had our initial session, if you're happy to continue, then we'll arrange the second appointment, and plan to see each other regularly, usually weekly.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Member organisations

BACP

British Association for Counselling & Psychotherapy

BACP is one of the UK’s largest professional bodies for counselling and psychotherapy. Therapists registered with the Association fall into a number of different membership categories such as Individual Member, Registered Member MBACP and Registered Member MBACP (Accred), each standing for different levels of training and experience. MBACP (Accred) and MBACP (Snr Accred) members have achieved a substantial level of training and experience approved by the Association.

Registered members can be found on the BACP Register, which was the first register to achieve Accredited Voluntary Register status issued by the Professional Standards Authority. Individual Members will have completed an appropriate counselling and/or psychotherapy course and started to practise, but will not appear on the BACP Register until they've progressed to Registered Member MBACP status.

All members are bound by a Code of Ethics & Practice and a Complaints Procedure. Accredited by the Professional Standards Authority.

Fees

As well as the standard 50 minute session, I also offer extended 80 minute sessions as I have found this can be particularly beneficial for some people.

My fees are:

  • £50 for individuals - 50 minutes
  • £75 for individuals - 80 minutes

Telephone sessions:

I offer telephone counselling at a rate of:

  • £50 for individuals - 50 minutes
  • £75 for individuals - 80 minutes

Block booking:

For those wishing to block book 6 sessions, my reduced fees are:

  • £45 for individuals - 50 minutes
  • £70 for individuals - 80 minutes

Availability:

As well as standard weekday time slots, I can also offer early mornings and evenings, as I'm passionate about extending access to those who are unable to attend standard day time appointments. We all have busy lives, I don't want this to be a barrier for those who would benefit from counselling, so please contact me and we'll work together to find a time that suits.
